Would you quit a high-paying job at the #1 cable news show in the world?  It would be a difficult decision to make, especially if you were quitting to go out on your own to invest in real estate and build your own business.

Clayton Morris is our guest today and is a former News Anchor for Fox. He wanted to work in media since he was a child and after having a successful career he decided to leave Fox to become a full-time entrepreneur.  Many people told him he was foolish to leave the network and security of a great job, but Clayton was ready for the move because he has been investing in real estate and creating passive income for years before he made the leap.  

Since, leaving Fox, Clayton has built a top-rated podcast with over 10,000,000 downloads, a successful YouTube channel with over 6.5 million views and has created the Financial Freedom Academy where he teaches others to invest and find financial freedom for themselves.
